If waking up to the sound of waves gently crashing on a golden-yellow stretch of beach with no one around is your idea of heaven, then this ultra modern beachside home should be the muse you build your dream nest around.

This stunning oceanfront residence in Malibu defines the aesthetic of contemporary minimalist design. Even though it is heavy-handed in its use of concrete and glass, the modern beachside home has an overwhelming sense of warmth and airiness to it -- with a little help of the beautiful details around the space from the white oak ceilings to the lush green landscaping to the soothing mix of textures in the furnishings used.

"I’m obsessed with the ways that buildings express the subtle qualities of the materials used in their construction," says the architectural designer Scott Mitchell behind this breathtaking residence. "This house is all about honoring the integrity of concrete and glass while creating a rhythmic interplay between those materials and the landscape."
